Thank you and goodnight. I hope it's not too painful cutting off the Darwinesque beard and replacing it with the creationist blinkers.
(Sorry, but just watched another load of tripe on the box and fighting off a further even worse load. At least the first was just infuriating but the second looks like pseudoscientific nonsense. They talk the talk but are just parroting facile oversimplifiers. Grrrrr!)
So once again, goodnight.

They are based on reading Huxley, Singer, Maynard Smith, Schrodinger, Charles and Erasmus Darwin, and plenty more, so l feel I'm informed. But l accept personal opinions aren't ok here. It's hard to know beforehand where they're Ok. I started asking only for tips on how to arrange my talks, but I got involved in conversation and fell into giving my opinions.

Pride in ones own arrogance (I didn't think it possible) combined with determined and deliberate ignorance.

Good luck.
